At Covenant College we are very intentional about being called a Christian School, we do not believe in just having a Christian Ethos and Christian values to underpin our education model, but rather believe in being a school where Jesus is the centre of our existence! We believe in a vibrant relationship with Jesus and a faith that is active and alive.
Each week our learners and staff have the privilege of attending and participating in a Praise and Worship assembly. We are passionate about the word of God and actively engage in Praise and the intimacy with God that Worship provides.
The Power of Prayer
Prayer and devotions begin our day both in the staffroom as well as in each class. Our curriculum is biblically integrated, so whether our learners are studying the Cold War or simple addition and subtraction, God is woven into the lesson and a biblical perspective is always presented.
Furthermore, at Covenant College we turn our attention to our community and those that are less fortunate. Each term our learners participate in Charity Drives, these are not just about raising funds for a cause or donating much needed items but rather about actually going to the recipient of our funds or donations and learning about the cause and encouraging our learners to volunteer their time and talents to these causes.
Prayers for our Staff
By Mrs. N. Ford
Heavenly Father, We thank you for every staff member of Covenant College, whether they are involved in teaching, administration, finance or facilities and we bring them to You in humility but also in confidence knowing that we can enter into the Holy of Holies on their behalf and ask for Your blessing and favour on each one as they fulfil their duties as unto the Lord who has handpicked them for their specific season.
We thank you today for the teaching staff and ask that you grant them Your Holy Spirit’s wisdom and guidance each day as they interact with the learners, may they indeed be the bright light that shuns the darkness in whichever form the enemy tries to bring it, may they be the friendly face and contagious smile that gives comfort and confidence to the learners and a gentle yet assertive presence who leads the learners with truth and grace. Prepare their hearts and minds each day to welcome, encourage, love and discipline the learners according to Your Word and grant them grace, skills and knowledge in the challenges they may face. Grant them divinely appointed God-moments each day that would minister deep and profound truths to the learners that would touch hearts and change lives. When they feel overwhelmed and tired grant them your strength and may they then remember the Godly vision of Christian Education which is ultimately to shape the learners into a generation of Christ-like, Spirit-led individuals who will impact society for the glory of God, may they know nothing goes unnoticed by You, their reward will be great.
We also pray for our administration, finance and facilities staff and thank you for their beautiful servant hearts as they serve the teachers, learners and parents faithfully on a daily basis. Grant them Your excellence in all that they do and guide them in wisdom and steadfastness assuring them that all labour unto the Lord is not in vain and that You will reward and bless the work of their hands.
Father we thank you that each day will be an opportunity for our staff to be vessels in Your mighty hands, vessels of honour and integrity that would understand the gravity of the calling placed on their lives as men and woman who are ambassadors for the Kingdom of God.
In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.
A Prayer for our Learners
By Mrs. T. Lopes
Heavenly Father, We thank you for your love (1 John 4:10) that you pour out onto our learners daily. We pray that you will fill them with courage and strength and remove all fear and discouragement from their hearts and minds (Joshua 1:9). Give them the strength to trust in you with their whole heart and to submit to you in all their ways (Proverbs 3:5-6).
God, we know that you have a plan of hope and a good future for each and every learner (Jeremiah 29:11), help them to follow where you lead them. We pray that each learner will work as unto you, Lord (Colossians 3:23), and that when they feel anxious or overwhelmed, they will cast every worry and concern onto you, knowing that you will care for them (1 Peter 5:7). We pray that they will stand strong on your promises, knowing that they can do all things through Christ who strengthens them (Philippians 4:13) and that you will generously give wisdom to them when they ask (John 1:5).
Father God, when they feel weak, remind them that your power is at work within them (2 Corinthians 12:9-10), when they feel weary, remind them that you will renew their strength (Isaiah 40:30-31), when they feel stressed, remind them that you are their peace (John 14:27), and when they feel tired, remind them that you will give them rest (Matthew 11:28-29).
We pray that our learners will let their light shine before all people (Matthew 5:16) and that they will freely share kindness, compassion and forgiveness with others (Ephesians 4:32). Help them to live according to your truth daily (3 John 1:4) and to live following the example of Christ (Ephesians 5:1-2).
We pray all of this to our Father in the name of Jesus,
A Prayer for our Parents
By Mr. S. Jouxson
Heavenly Father, we come to you in Jesus name and bring the parents of Covenant Collage to you. We lift them up in prayer knowing the great task you have entrusted into their hands, the joy of raising up children, raising them in the fear and admonition of our Lord. We pray that through the precious gift of the Holy Spirit, you continue to give them strength, wisdom and understanding to raise up their children into Godly men and woman, that will impact the world around them, bringing glory and honor to your Name.
As we see so many things around us change, we know we can trust and be fixed in your never changing love for us. We thank you that this love covers us like a banner and keeps us on the paths you have set for our lives. As we continue to put our trust in You and Your Word, we know that no matter changes we face as parents, or our children face in their lives, we can face them knowing that you have made us more than conquerors, and not matter what we face we need not fear but stand steadfast in your love for us.
We thank you Lord for the great Blessing the parents of Covenant Collage have been to the school. We thank you for their faithfulness and commitment they show to the school, given up of their time to participate at the school. May Your hand of Blessing keep them and prosper them in all that they do, that they may be like trees planted by the rivers of water, bringing forth fruit in their season, we thank you that their leaves will never wither and dry. We thank you for your faithful guidance in their lives.
We pray this in Jesus Name, Amen.
